This chapter considers how people in Scotland have reacted to the experience of devolution. It examines whether they feel that devolution has improved the way in which their country is governed. It also examines how their experience changed their views about the way in which the Union operates. This chapter notes that the advocates of devolution argued that people would come to feel that devolution has improved the way Scotland is governed, and that as a result they would be persuaded to hold a more benign view towards the Union.
